Bangladesh to remain RMG hotspot in future, buyers say

Bangladesh will remain as the preferred sourcing destination for readymade garment (RMG) items well into the future as the country has substantially improved production facilities and on compliance with regulations over the last few years, said international clothing retailers and brands yesterday.

Since the Rana Plaza building collapse in April 2013, Bangladesh’s workplace safety and compliance with regulations improved a lot, said the foreign buyers.

As a result, retailers and brands are coming over with an increased volume of work orders, especially with improvements in the Covid-19 situation, as the local apparel sector has also proved its strength.

“Bangladesh is the most important sourcing destination for our company,” said Ziaur Rahman, Swedish retail giant H&M’s regional head for Bangladesh, Pakistan and Ethiopia, on the sidelines of the 12th Bangladesh Denim Expo in Dhaka.
